Holiday Tours and A Christmas Carol at Grey Towers


MILFORD, PA – Grey Towers National Historic Site, Milford, PA, will offer two readings of “A Christmas Carol” on Saturday Dec. 7 and Sunday Dec. 8 and guided holiday tours of all three floors of the beautifully decorated mansion from Monday, Dec. 9 through Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013, at 1 pm and 3 pm.

Now in its 32nd year, “A Christmas Carol” dramatic reading will be performed by Joe Plummer Jr., founder and director of ‘Gotta Kid To Feed Productions,’ a digital media company, and Therese Plummer, an actor and award winning voice over artist. Both are the children of Joe Plummer Sr. of Delaware, who performed the readings for the first 30 years. Tickets are $20 per person through the Grey Towers Heritage Association. For ticket info call 570-296-9625 or email info@greytowers.org or visit the website at www.greytowers.org to purchase on-line.

The 1886 mansion, formerly the home of Gov. Gifford Pinchot, founder and first chief of the US Forest Service, will once again be decorated by members of the Milford Garden Club. Each floor is decorated with a different theme or era. These special holiday tours bring visitors to all three floors of the mansion; the upper floors usually are not open to the public for tours.

In addition to the guided tours, visitors can enjoy a Holiday Art Exhibit and Sale, plein air paintings by artists of Come Paint With Me and unique photographs by members of the Highlands Photography Guild, all creatively depicting Grey Towers and the landscape. The holiday art show is co-sponsored by the Grey Towers Heritage Association.

The Grey Towers Interpretive Gift Shop is open from December 9-21 offering a 20% discount. The shop includes unique holiday gift items provided by Eastern National Forests Interpretive Association and the Grey Towers Heritage Association.
